if you watch alot and collect VHS you should have a decent VCR - you dont want a crap VCR eating a tape.
the top JVC's on the list are usually around $200-$300, but if you are a good ebayer you can snatch them up for less.
some of the older JVC's Super-VHS are built like tanks and can be had on ebay
for very reasonable.
Panasonic Ag-1970 & Ag-1980's can be had for under $100
some Sharps and Toshibas are good too
stay away from cheap plasticy units - stuff like Emerson, GE, Symphonic etc are complete crap
not sure where you are- but make sure you get a correct format (NTSC, PAL etc)
just saying cause the YT clip you posted was a foreign language
